IPIECA and human rights

December 2017

This fact sheet summarises the work which IPIECA has done on human rights since the endorsement of the UNGPs in 2011 and the launch of its Business and Human Rights Project. This work has included developing practical guidance on due diligence and community grievance mechanisms that have been widely used throughout the oil and gas industry. The fact sheet also announces the next phase of IPIECA’s Business and Human Rights Project, which will focus on respect for human rights in the supply chain, initially concentrating on the contracted workforce that the industry relies on to develop and operate its large-scale operations. This is an area of common saliency across the oil and gas industry, and one in which IPIECA members can benefit from peer learning and sharing of good practices.
